Honda Activa continues to lead the way as 1,93,607 units were sold against 2,34,279 units in August 2019 with 17 per cent YoY volume decline
In August 2020, six of the top ten most sold scooters in the country posted positive sales growth. It is an encouraging sign and shows the steady progress the two-wheeler industry has been making in recent months. No smooth sailing for the leading scooter in India, Honda Activa, though as it endured 17 per cent volume decline.
The undisputed top-selling scooter in India posted a total of 1,93,607 units as against 2,34,279 units during the same time last year. The Jupiter continued to stick around in second position as 52,378 units were sold against 57,849 units during the corresponding month in 2019 with 9 per cent Year-on-Year de-growth.
The Dio came home third with an impressive 14 per cent sales increase as 42,957 units were sold against 37,726 units. The latest advertisement campaigns seem to be working in its favour among the young audience. The Access 125 recorded a total of 41,484 units as against 48,646 units during the same period last year with 15 per cent volume drop.
